i guess we could use it - not lying, not cheating, not stealing... they say chastity, but we can get back to that one later - i think they're talking about moderation there. and in other words - let me give you a modern spin on that, just real quickly, on those kinds of things. if you think of not stealing, and not killing and these kinds of things as prohibitions, i don't think you've even begun to make the ethical understanding. and i like to think of a very common term in the psychological world as manipulation. if you're a person that's given to manipulating other people, that's when you're in- that you look at life like "i'm the center, and anything i can get for myself is okay." once you're there, then you can steal, you can cheat. cheating amazes me, because some say that 90 percent of students in college cheat. you can only cheat if you are in that mode that says you're the center of the universe and you can get something for yourself. so all these prohibitions actually come out of wrong mind set to begin with. yeah, go ahead, janet. >> and this is where the sexual misconduct
